I am going insane.
Every single night for the past two weeks, my router kicks me off at 1:40AM exactly. It is not a server outage, because it is only affecting the one computer that is hard wired to the router.
Everything wireless, laptops, desktops, phones, etc, are NOT affected. Any idea what I should be looking for?
It's really starting to become a pain. I've been logged in to remote sessions on one of my servers and lost everything that I hadn't saved yet because of this.

Do you see any mention of anything going on in your router's System Log besides possible DHCP events? You should be able to find them by visiting http://192.168.1.1/ and choosing System Monitoring. You may need to go into a section called Advanced Monitors to get the log.

I am not seeing ANYTHING on my logs that would pertain to this issue. I JUST got DC'd again in the middle of a conversation. All wireless STILL on, not disconnected.

That is the only entry in the log file that I see that is even remotely recent.
However I do remember a while back the firewall was internally updated, by what I do not know or why, and it really screwed a lot of things up. I could not connect to ventrilo, could not connect to a LOT of things, even though there were allow rules set up for it. I just checked the security log from the firewall and I see this yet again.
No idea where to go from here.

I wouldn't have any other ideas at the moment. What you can try is to isolate the problem a bit more. Connect another PC to the Ethernet ports temporarilly to see if that PC is also seeing problems. Perhaps switching the port your PC uses on the ActionTec may help. Giving the ActionTec a factory reset and re-configuring your settings (Port Forwards, QoS, Wireless settings, etc) by hand may also solve it if the problem is from Verizon's doing such as a firmware upgrade. Lastly, you can see if Verizon will send you another router to see if it exhibits the same problem.
